When browsing our map, click a dot to learn more about a case. Make sure to scroll down on the side of the page (blue background) rather than on the map itself. The map includes cases organized by violation category. See the legend on the left to identify the different categories and the color associated with each. If you want to view a specific category, click on the violation, and the map will display applicable cases. Clicking the “Zoom to” icon (magnifying glass) will shift the map to where those cases are located. Clicking the “Show all” icon (checklist) will deselect any categories you have selected and show all the cases on the map.
